About Ek Ladki Ek Sapna

Runtime: 40 Minutes minutes

Language: Hindi

Genre: Drama

The deep-seated cultural preference for sons has skewed India’s 1.2 billion population’s gender demographic, particularly in the states of Haryana, Rajasthan, and Punjab.  Unfortunately, this phenomenon is no longer limited to Indian states. The physical and mental torturing of ‘girl-only-child-bearing-women’ in Indian communities in Canada has become a somewhat common occurrence. “Ek Ladki Ek Sapna” is the story of  such a woman, who marries an Indian Canadian and immigrates to Canada with the hope for a perfect life.
